Barrow honors postponed
Orchard Park now will honor late coach Bob Barrows before Saturday’s 11 a.m. baseball game against Jamestown. The event, in which a banner will be unveiled underneath the scoreboard on the outfield wall with the former longtime coach’s name and number, was originally scheduled Saturday but rain/wet grounds forced the event along with the Quakers’ nonleague game against Canisius to be rescheduled. Barrows devoted more than 50 years to coaching OP baseball, including 39 years as head coach (1961-2000).
